This one is for those who didn't grow up in Spokane or anywhere near here.
You know how many people in our area seem to think nothing of driving over to Seattle? Well, if you applied that one-way distance to potential trips in more densely populated parts of the country (the place where you grew up, perhaps), where could you have gone?
I'll go first. If you started in the New England town where I went to high school, a drive of that length could have gotten you way past Boston, Hartford or Montreal. Or past Portland, Maine. Or past Providence, R.I. Or Manchester, New Hampshire. And almost to New York City. (Past it, if we use the Coeur d'Alene to Seattle distance.)
